Jessica Brilli’s Static Series engages viewers with objects from another era: Kodak cameras, transistor radios, and manual typewriters. Painting in a style that combines American realism with Appropriation Art, she brings a contemporary eye to technologies from the 1950s, ’60s, and ’70s. Before she begins a new work, she scours flea markets and antique shops, looking for everyday objects that excite her imagination. “I’ve experimented with various subjects,” she says, “but I always enjoy evoking the beauty in everyday scenes and objects."
